Sid The Baby Sloth At Home In U.K. Zoo (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Meet Sid. She's a four-month-old two-toed sloth who lives at the Bristol Zoo in the U.K.

According to the zoo's website, Sid is "growing well" and enjoying a diet of milk and cooked vegetables. Green beans are her favorite.

Sid is fed seven times per day and receives 24-hour care from zookeepers. She weighed just over a pound at birth, but has quadrupled in weight since then.

The zoo's website also explains that sloths like Sid are native to South America. Although they aren't facing extinction, "habitat destruction and climate change are the biggest threats facing Linne’s two-toed sloths. They are also hunted as food and for their claws and fur, which are used to make necklaces and saddlecloths."

Be sure to check out these videos of cute sloths and this video of a baby sloth with a case of the Mondays.
